Mitch Mcconnell Draws The Legislator Contempt After Suggesting The Bipartisan Stimulus Invoice Is The Loss Of Time

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) faces criticism over suggesting a bipartisan proposal on further stimulus is a waste of time, after detailing a plan of his own and insisting the priority is something President Donald Trump will back.

It has been more than eight months since the last major COVID-19 relief package, the CARES Act, was signed by the president. A prolonged stalemate in attempting to secure a follow-up continues.

A group including Republican and Democrat lawmakers unveiled a $908 billion compromise proposal on Tuesday, in a bid to breach the impasse.

Asked about this pitch at a news conference, and the need for the House to pass something as well as the president to sign it, McConnell said: “We just don’t have time to waste time. We have a couple of weeks left here. Obviously, it does require bipartisan support to get out of the Congress but it requires a presidential signature.

“This government is in place for sure for the next month. I think the place to start is are we actually making a law or are we just making a point.

“And I think the way you make a law for sure is you know you got a presidential signature.”
